I found what the course was about. Thanks for the reply though :-).
Here is the course description:
Students learn to develop and apply software tools and technologies to assist with the recovery, preservation, analysis and presentation of computer code and digital evidence. Topics include log file and registry parsing, analysis of memory and core dumps, assembly language, machine code, and stack analysis. Theory/Lab
I'm assuming this is beyond basic encase and ftk since all that was covered in previous electives and this a higher elective.
After speaking to other graduates it sounds like we will be doing: writing our own forensic programs and scripts to help automate the forensic process as well as integrating our scripts and programs into forensic investigations. A lot of what my school does is based around Tulsa University program wants. We feed a lot of kids into the masters program. Dr. Shenoi is a genius.
